KapohoKine Adventures - HeliZippin' Volcano (from Hilo)
This is a great combo tour – you’ll first experience a thrilling zipline trek and after that an helicopter tour of the island! Your exciting day starts at the zipline check-in location at the KapohoKine Adventures store in Hilo. Covering nearly 2 miles of tropical river gorges, the 8-line zipline course is fun for the whole family. Zip by several gorgeous waterfalls and experience one of the longest ziplines on the Big Island at over 2,400 feet in length! You’ll also ride the only all side-by-side dual-track zipline on the island.
Your adventure continues with a drive to the helipad for check-in. What better way to see the current volcanic activity than from the air? KapohoKine Adventures partners with the highest-tech helicopter fleet in Hawaii. All seats have 180-degree views.
Following your helicopter tour, you’ll head out to explore the island with a first stop at Rainbow Falls, a beautiful 80-foot cascade. After that, you’ll travel up the Wailuku River to Boiling Pots, where you’ll find impressive photo opportunities when the river “boils” through depressions in the rocks. Nearby are Kaumana Caves, which feature an impressive cathedral-like space.
Then it’s on to the famous Volcano Winery, where you can sample up to 8 different wines, all with a unique Hawaiian touch. They also have estate grown teas to taste. Soft drinks and water are included as well. You’ll also enjoy a delicious Hawaiian-style dinner with a complimentary glass of your choice of Volcano Winery wine or other beverage. Complete your day viewing the current volcanic activity if it’s available from a safe distance before returning.
